...Of Boards. What kind of boards? Hear me out.
Hear this introduction out first:
When someone has a short story to tell I'd like to hear it in their voice. I'd like to see what a storyteller they make by their being vocal with
So I really like the idea I'm abut to tell another way as you may tell. I'd like to do a short, steamy love novel by phoning it in. Have the ladies
going crazy over my voice and my short, steamy love novel.
I tell you, you guys who'd front on this idea would be acting like you don't know what you'd be missing out on with this idea come true.
If you like doing journels, then you should really like to express your's vocally by a phone-in. If you like making poems, then you should really
like making your's vocal by a phone-in.
Sometimes it's going to be like screw smilies, when you can have real emotion behind a voice for a change. And if you like to sing, hey, someone
might notice you and seek to give you a record deal where you can make royalties.
Now, on to the grand idea that would be technology related:
So I have an idea where somebody can make more money than just by ads on their website. You know voice mail, right? Well, if somebody would make a
site where its half about free to post messages and half about pay-per-call thread starting (and pay-per-call respond-to-thread posting) via an
advanced voice mail system that automatically uploads voice mail onto a site (maybe it can even be a sister site of voice mail forum discussion type
to a big brother site of regular message board forum discussion).
The cost to start a thread would cost more than the cost to reply. I'd be willing to make pay-per-threads and pay-per-posts, to even support freedom
of speech, if they indeed do get to be vocal related to come across like audiobooks do.
What do you other members think so far? Would you be willing to make vocal threads/vocal posts that spare you from having to write in proper
english?... That spare you from not being able to get your point across crystal clear like how it may not be when writing sometimes?
Besides, who wouldn't want to hear an OP's voice for a change? Who wouldn't want to hear my voice?
I can have such the voice of a talented
audiobook personality when I want to emphasize or stress what I'm speaking about.
But how will threads be labeled, you ask? Maybe they shouldn't, to have the sister site (voice mail board) be different from its big brother site
(message board). Threads on the sister site would come across just like a Cracker Jack's box, where one has to dig into it to find out what kind of a
prize they get. Or maybe a moderater could help give threads a title after the pay-per-voice mail has been uploaded automatically. Anyway, the caller
should be given a pin number to their topic started. And that pin number would be on the topic for many to see so that a person who wants to reply may
do so with that pin number to input into the voice mail system upon calling in. So yes, the system would have to be automated.
Itunes charges $1.99 for an episode of a tv show. And .99 cent to $1.24 for a single song. Hey, maybe somebody could also make prepaid phone cards for
their sister site, that are made to order from their big brother site's store. A pay-per-call to start a thread could cost $1.99 for the first
minute, and .99 each additional minute. And a pay-per call to post a reply could cost $1.24 for the first minute and .99 cent for each additional
The caller would state the title they want to give their topic first, then the caller would get right into their topic, and then finally the caller
would signature it verbally at the end. They could say something at the end like, "This thread is by Tormentations."
Anyway, I think this idea come true would bring a new dynamic to both the world wide web and the telephone in the future.
There may be people out there that have something urgently important to share of the topic realm that just can't at the time get to a computer with
internet access. They may really find a voice mail system, how my idea is describing, most useful.
No one thinks this is the future?!!
I think voice mail boards are going to be the wave of the future some day. Better to be first to jump start on it, I say. They'll be called voice
mail boards that are pay-per thread/post discussion forums.
The idea is also that it needs to be so that one may call just to hear some person's voice mail thread (and the voice mail replies it got) over the
phone by way of some kind of a pin number assigned automatically to the voice mail thread that the voice mail thread starter also recieves at the time
of their call to start a voice mail thread. Hey, there would have to be a cost to hear like that too. Say, $1.24 for the first minute, .99 cent for
each additional minute. I also think the idea will call for a limit in the length of minutes an audiobook styled voice mail thread can be. Like 11
minutes max. Face it, if you write too much, no one will feel like reading, but if you speak too much it's a different story because people will
listen. "A lazy reader is a good listener."--Tormentations
And, still, the big brother site, or big brother aspect, would allow free postings while its sister site, or sister aspect, would cost. The difference
is one aspect is type related, and the other is voice related.
If I had the money to start a site of my own I'd start one of these joint regular message boards/voice mail boards I'm talking about. At least then
I wouldn't have to relie on ads, but could still have ads on my site to the side lines.
Voices will become strong by the idea upon it coming true. Hey, there are people that say we don't really have a voice, but now, with this idea due
to come true some day, we'll have a voice to be heard world wide.
To the tech savvy which like the grand idea of mine also:
Get to it if you're into trend setting technology that changes the face of the world wide web, because if your Online Forums Statistics say it's a
total of 190,212 members (currently) like ATS says... And each of those members makes one voice mail thread (because they want to or because they
support the site
) that lasts, say, for a full 11 minutes (say that's the max before a call termination) at the cost of $1.99 for the first minute
and .99 cent for each additional minute, then that would be a total of $11.89 times a total of 190, 212 members. Which equals a smooth
And no, I'm not a money blocker like some people may seem to be. And I think people should have a voice of free speech, unlike
some people who think people shouldn't have their voice of free speech heard. The fun thing is, is that the sister site wouldn't end its big brother
site for you who like to type or text. No, the idea is that it would be a sister site. So I don't see how anyone in their right mind will have a
solid reason behind why not to like the idea. Go figure, huh? Even maybe this site isn't some people's favorite site, to why they don't want to see
the site owner prosper. Beats me.
I know that that two million and something sounds about SWEET!
